Anyone knows what the height of the high lightblue slender column is and what kind of building it is? It seems too high for a parking tower and looks too beautiful for a chimney. This photo was taken from Odaiba.

Nice picture. Could it be possible that you are more interested in streetscenes than in architecture?

I have a request. Can you please list all towers you have visited. It would be nice to know which tower have an observation deck, too.
I know only Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Goverment Building, Sunshine 60 and Roppongi Hills.

Some more questions:

Why do a lot of Japanese girls walk with their feet inwards? Is this regarded as 'beauty' in Japan? Do they walk like that on purpose or is it a 'physical inability'?

Why do a lot of youths give a V-sign with their fingers when they see a photo camera? Very annoying!

IHello, I dont know the height, but it is a chimney. Tokyo has the law that all the big factory must filter the gas they produced and build the chimney high in order for people not to breathe such air.

Haha yeah they do. Its the "peace" symbol. I think they do it because they think American kids do it, but we actually don't.
